Making APEC Meaningful:
For the first time, conditions exist for a massively integrated Pacific region that could drive world growth well through the 21st century. That theme, of course, is at the top of the agenda when APEC’s 21 prime ministers and Presidents gather in Bali Oct 5-7, hosted by the Indonesian President. Dressed in festive Balinese costumes for their photo op, these leaders may cheerily proclaim themselves equal partners in a connected economy which “lifts all boats.” Nonsense. Under current conditions, an invisible divide makes regional integration politically unthinkable: the broadband gap.
Closing the Digital Divide is not just about giving to the poor the benefits of the rich. It is about creating a more equitable and balanced world economy.
